Baby On Board: The Never-Ending Debate

  1. to be honest its not babies i’ve had an issue with on flights its toddlers and older children, ok so i am a parent but when i travel with my daughter i make sure i bring everything (within reason) that could possibly entertain her, it would appear to have worked, her first school report (she’s 5) says she has high concentration levels!

  2. It is really simple. When my children were babies, we drove a car where their crying only bothered us. Ban any child under the age of 6 on airplanes. I do not pay $500 to be annoyed by an unruly child.

  3. I pay for a seat for the baby when I travel – even when he is under two years of age. So he is a paying customer and that is all the airline really cares about. It has been my experience that adults are usually the most problematic fellow flyers. I recall a trip my husband, two children and I took from Honolulu to Sydney. We were in first class and had to listen to an adult male loudly proclaim that they shouldn’t let kids in first class as he continued to get drunk and hit on his seat mate. My kids were busy the entire flight with books and other diversions and never made noise. Even when the male passenger finally passed out he snored loudly for the rest of the flight. I think the FAs preferred my kids over the adult passenger.

    How do you drive a car from California to Hawaii? Or to Europe? Or Asia?
    Maybe you should be banned from flights for your comments. I hope my kid sits next to you on our next flight. 🙂
